  • Norman G. Miller
Part of the Research Issues in Real Estate book series (RIRE, volume 5)


Business ethics serve to provide guidelines for behaviors toward colleagues or the publics served by the affected industry. While sometimes cumbersome and often lengthy, business codes of conduct can generally be simplified to their core essence and intentions with little difficulty. Providing such interpretations aids greatly in the teaching or understanding of such codes of conduct. The National Association of Realtors is used as a base case to illustrate the process of simplification, after a review of typical ethical concerns in the real estate industry.
